Horses Empower Heroes


As a veteran himself, Jim Arrington loves working with organizations that support fellow veterans. One of the most rewarding experiences that he and his staff have had was working with Small Miracles’ Horses Empower Heroes (HEH) program. This program promotes self-sufficiency for veterans by enhancing cognitive, emotional, and social growth. The strength-based program uses unmounted, experiential equine-assisted activities and therapies. HEH is done in collaboration with the James H. Quillen Mountain Home V.A. in Johnson City, Tenn. It provides medical attention for veterans of all branches of military service.
